I find that I was drawing her to small. It was not enabling me to be as loose with the sketch as I need to be. So I did a more loose caricature on a big sheet of paper which allowed me to draw with my whole arm not just my wrist. Her face here is getting closer to what I want.

This is my first crack at her. There isn't much character, attitude, and personality in this initial sketch. I'll practice her a bit, then make a drawing that isn't so static and boring. It's not easy trying to caricature her, and at the same time keep her as drop dead beautiful as she is. Just looking at this sketch now, I have an idea that might work, if I can pull it off....wait and see.

This is the bg I came up with for the stick puppets. It will change color from scene to scene, but other than the color, it will be a constant. Depending on what the scene is, different elements will appear; for example, for an ocean scene, this bg will be blue and I'll add a couple clouds and waves of water at the bottom. Or if it is a scene of Mount Olympus, other elements will appear, a column and a mountain.
